Does anyone out there know the words of a song called Maire Ni Ceide. I remember well my good mate and friend Larry Burke ( Gabriel ) r.i.p. from Springfield, Castlebar often singing it heartily, and we used to enjoy hearing it enormously. The song was about a "Republican" !!!! woman from Connemara who was travelling on a train carrying arms, grenades, pistols, and explosives on her person. She was stopped on the train by the Black and Tans and searched very roughly. And all the information she would only give them ( in Irish ) was " Mise Maire Ni Ceide 90266". I would love the words.
